Successful EVA Simulation on Devon Island

Mars Institute HMP EVA Medical Evacuation Simulation Update 1 August 2006

"The 2006 HMP Lunar Medical Contingency Simulation demonstrated that an injured suited crewmember could be safely extracted from difficult terrain, similar to what might be expected in a lunar EVA, and transported to a remote site for diagnostic and therapeutic care. A number of issues developed unexpectedly during the sim that challenged the crew and sim planners. However, the team was able to complete the mission, which involved real-time communications and coordination between members of the Exploration Payload Operations Center at NASA-Johnson Space Center, International Space University in Strasburg, France, and the Payload Tele-Operations Center in Ottawa, Canada."
